Robo Recall for Oculus Quest – New information and pictures released
Developer studio Drifter Entertainment will be porting the upcoming quest version of Robo Recall. In the official Oculus blog, Ray Davis, co-founder of the studio and executive producer of Bullet Train (then at Epic Games), describes the development process of the popular VR title:
“My background is a mix of AAA titles and futuristic / VR technologies. Accordingly, we not only want to make fantastic games, but also to develop fantastic games for VR and XR. “
Due to the experience with the medium VR, as well as the release of the PC version of the game at the former studio, it was a logical step in his view, now to port the port of Robo Recall for the upcoming Oculus Quest.
But the development came with some challenges. The PC VR title was presented in 2017 by Epic Games as a showcase title for the Oculus Rift and the associated touch controllers and is accordingly graphically highly sophisticated. The task was to transfer the unique gaming experience to the lower-performing quest.
“It will push the limits of the platform enormously. But it’s also a fantastic opportunity to understand how the hardware works. So what challenges to face and what compromises you have to go for an implementation. One of our core principles was: “By no means change the gameplay”. We wanted to get full parity on Rift and Quest. “
Nevertheless, one had to slim down in the graphical representation to make this possible. With various tricks and tricks, such as the multi-view technology for rendering the content has now been remedied to maintain the photorealistic style.
But despite some doubts during the development process, the developers are now convinced of their work. Especially thanks to the self-sufficient Oculus Quest and the associated cable-free experience, the port should reveal a unique gaming experience.
